Digital Hearing Aid Styles & Technology

Hearing aids come in a variety of shapes, styles and technologies. Which one is right for you? That answer depends on your individual hearing loss and your personal listening needs. We will work with you to determine the very best solution for you, your lifestyle, and your budget.
Hearing aids are available from a variety of manufacturers in a variety of sizes and shapes, from instruments that fit behind the ear to instruments that fit within the ear canal. Electronic circuitry has advanced significantly, allowing patients greater sound comfort and improved speech recognition in noisy situations.

Digital Hearing Aids

ReSound Linx Wireless Hearing Instruments

Digital Hearing Aids are adjusted via a computer connection, provide the most flexibility, allowing the audiologist to custom fit the response of the device to a specific hearing loss. We will help you choose the best instrument according to your needs and your budget.

Hearing aids have developed from "clunky ear prosthetics" to amazingly sophisticated devices that can be both comfortable and virtually invisible!

Depending on the level of technology that you prefer, modern hearing devices have the ability to:

  • digitally process sound in a way that sounds very natural.
  • adapt and automatically adjust to different listening environments.
  • reduce background noise to focus on the sounds you want to hear.
  • be programmed to suit the types of listening environments you experience.
  • connect wirelessly to your TV, cell phone, MP3 player and more.

After we provide you with our recommendations to help you hear better and answer your questions, we'll provide you with information on the latest, most comfortable, hearing aids available.

Types or Styles of Hearing Aids

It's important to us that you know that hearing aids are a lot different than they were even five years ago. If you're picturing a really obvious instrument that sits on your ear and whistles, you're in for a very pleasant surprise!

Modern hearing aids are tiny (in some cases virtually invisible!), sophisticated devices with an array of special functions that can "zoom in" on sounds you want to hear and "reduce" noise that makes it difficult to understand conversation.

Plus, they can be programmed to suit your personal listening needs. If you like to attend the theater, eat in restaurants, have a family barbecue, go to a basketball game, run marathons—we can work with you to find a hearing aid that fits YOUR lifestyle.

I have been seeing Dr. McCurley for many years. The other day I picked up Dr. McCurley's business card. It is very rare when you see business cards that live up to their promises. Dr. McCurley's business card simply says, 'I Listen. You hear.' So simple but so effective because that's who Dr. McCurley is: one amazing doctor and person who will not give up on anyone."

Thanks to Dr. Dorothy McCurley, I can now join in the conversation at social gatherings and in noisy restaurants. She has given me back my ability to hear and understand speech."
